I am a father. There’s normally one referee on the field who controls the whistle and the cards. Cards? Yep, cards. In soccer, punishment is doled out through the referee raising a yellow or red card. A yellow card warns a player for breaking the rules. If the incident is serious, the referee can hold up a red card. That means the player has to leave the game for good, with his team unable to put in a sub. That’s called ‘playing a man down’ and it means the team plays with 10 instead of 11 players. Two yellow cards to the same player also equals a red and a sending off. A team can play with no less than 7 players on the field. If a foul happens in the 18-yard-box, the referee can award a penalty. That means the fouled team gets to take a kick directly at the goalkeeper from the penalty spot 12 yards from the center of the goal line.
Known as the “il Balilla”, he is an Italian soccer player playing for Internazionale in the 1930s. He has scored a total of 242 goals in 365 games for the club. He won both the 1934 and 1938 World Cups with Italy. That is a tremendous achievement 18hoki for a player. He and 3 other Italian soccer players are the only ones that win back to back World Cups. This record still holds today. He started out as a striker, but started playing in midfield for having creative playmaking skills.
So the commercials on TV for Hover Ball claim it “magically hovers” over the floor. Now, this is not a battery operated soccer ball so it can’t actually hover. The ball itself is not a complete ball, it’s like half a ball with a flat bottom. The flat bottom surface is what allows the soccer ball to appear to “hover” but is in fact just gliding across the floor. Whether it’s hovering or gliding the result is the same- you get a soccer ball that you can play with inside that will not roll all over the place. The flat surface keeps it more contained in an indoor setting making it a safer option for indoor soccer play than with a traditional soccer ball.
Playing with eleven people on one team is difficult, considering the fact that every player is entitled to his opinion and distinct style of play. Every player has his own position on the field, ranging from defenders, midfielders to strikers. Soccer stands on the four pillars of understanding, support, communication, and belief.
I’m sure you notice players on that team who get 5 min or less playing time in games. That’s humiliating for a child who’s at every practice session working hard. It leads to bullying and teasing from other team members. And please don’t say those kids suck and have to get better. Mendoza told me he awards kids playing time to please parents. He listens to parents too much.
When the coach whistles , every player will dribble the ball to the opposite side and stop on the line opposite to them. Of all the free soccer drills, this drill coaches the players to dribble across the square with their heads up and and do not interfere in each others’ path and thats why this is effective.
